Klara Vivian by mushisan Klara Vivian by mushisan
Eu estava vendo o documentário In the Realms of the Unreal, a biografia do artista Henry Darger, quando vi esta imagem:

"o que Klara está fazendo aqui???" XDD
Então me senti obrigado a fazer essa arte :D

Soube de Henry Darger lendo o livro "Desenhando Quadrinhos", do Scott McLoud. Numa das notas de rodapé, ele aponta o autor como um exemplo dos perigos de se criar muita informação de fundo sobre seus próprios personagens que ninguém lerá. Darger foi um solitário que durante sua vida escreveu e ilustrou suas próprias histórias, mas só foi descoberto nas vésperas de sua morte: entre outras coisas, ele escreveu um livro de 15.145 páginas (!!!), com centenas de ilustrações, sobre uma guerra entre dois países imaginários e principalmente, sobre suas heroínas, as sete irmãs Vivian.
Meio que me identifiquei com o autor e acho que vários autores se identificariam com Darger: alguém perdido em criar seus próprios mundos, sem que as pessoas em volta se importem com isso, aprendendo a desenhar para dar mais vida à seu próprio mundo (os desenhos de Darger eram colagens e riscados em cima de fotografias ou desenhos dos outros) e tal. A diferença é que ele foi um caso extremo, muito extremo.

Pra encerrar essa parede de texto, fiz a ilustração no photoshop e improvisei uma cor de caneta bic para contornar Klara e tratei as cores para parecer pintura a lápis. Ao fundo, uma das minhas HQs mais antigas que sobreviveram (afinal, jogamos um monte de coisa fora na vida, guardamos outro monte e nos perguntamos por que não guardamos aquilo e não jogamos fora isso), uma homenagem ao espírito das histórias que ninguém leu e ao improviso de artista iniciante =)

Sobre Darger: [link] e [link] (o documentário se acha facilmente no youtube, mas sem legendas exceto em espanhol, que já é alguma coisa para quem entende quase nada de inglês como eu)

PS: para quem já leu sobre ele e vier me perguntar, aviso que Klara é anatomicamente correta ò_o

I was watching the documentary "In the Realms of the Unreal", a biography of the artist Henry Darger, when I saw this:

"Klara, what are you doing here?? " XDD
So I felt compelled to make this art :D

I heard of Henry Darger reading the book "Making Comics" by Scott McLoud. In a footnote, he points this author as an example of the dangers of creating a lot of background information on their own characters that nobody will read. Darger was a loner who during his lifetime wrote and illustrated their own stories, but was only discovered on the eve of his death: among other things, he wrote a book of 15,145 pages (!), with hundreds of illustrations, about a war on between two imaginary countries and mainly about their heroines, the seven Vivian sisters.
I identified myself with the author and I think many authors identify with Darger: he was someone lost in creating their own worlds, without people around to care about it, learning to draw to give more life to your own world (Darger's drawings and collages were scratched upon photographs or drawings of others) and such. The difference is he was an extreme case, very extreme.

To end this wall of text, I did the illustration in photoshop, improvised a bic pen color to circumvent Klara and edited the colors to look like pencil painting. In the background, one of my older comics that survived, a tribute to the spirit of the stories that nobody will read and improvisation of a beginner artist =)

About Darger: [link] (the documentary easily find on youtube^^)

PS: For those who've read about the Vivian Girls and come ask me, Klara is anatomically correct!! ò_o

"The thing about history is there's always more history. And always more than what you're told." Whenever I'm told about people like Henry Darger, those people in Rome or Greece who spent ten years creating one marble statue seem a little less impossible.

Create is a danger and a fun =)

The "problem" with Darger wasnt worried about have a public, he was all the public he needs... and he was lost in is our story. And made something monumental :)

Amei o efeito que a textura e a lineart deram. Casou com o fundo muito bem. :3

era pra Klara ter pintura "normal", mas achei que ficou certinho demais, pobre demais. Então improvisei de roubar a textura do próprio desenho antigo que fiz (recortei, colei noutro layer, tirei as linhas do caderno, converti em tons de cinza e fiquei brincando com propriedades de camada XD) e aprendi a fazer cores pastel :P

Ficou mais a cara da inspiração original e de meus tempos de lápis de cor ^^
